MOMMA KNOWS… shapewear – what lies beneath the dress.

As a fashion stylist I am often working with celebrities for their red carpet appearances.  The trick with red carpet is there is no retouching and there is no cheating angles – you have to get it absolutely perfect.  A large part of getting the overall look perfect is getting the fit right – and so we have come to rely on shapewear.  That’s right, spanx baby!  You didn’t actually think celebrities were completely perfect did you?   Everyone needs a bit of extra support and there is no shame in that! It doesn’t matter if you’re a size 2 or a size 12, women need that little bit of extra something to smooth out the lumps and bumps for the best possible silhouette.  The holidays are upon us and we have dresses to pour ourselves into (while we pour ourselves another cocktail) – so, just in time, here are some of my go-to favorite shapewear from my stylist kit that helps transform celebrities into fashion icons.

While we’re talking about what goes under the dress… a nude thong is a must have.  Panty lines are never in style – so don’t mess the dress ladies!  If you don’t have them already – these are the first thing models and celebrities must put on when they’re on set with me.
